DANIEL RODRIGUEZ JR.

(drums)

 

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Daniel Rodriguez brings to The Stranger the same range of styles and brand of power that made Liberty DeVitto a staple in Billy Joel's band for decades. Prior to Daniel's work with The Stranger, his hard-hitting New York drumming style helped him rise above 4,000 other contenders to become The 2006 Guitar Center Drum Off Champion and begin a session and touring career that includes shows with Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Papa Roach, Travis Barker, and many others. Turning heads in the industry for nearly a decade, Daniel has twice graced the pages of Modern Drummer magazine and carries endorsements from Vic Firth sticks, Sabian Cymbals, and DW Drums. In his current role with The Stranger, Daniel more than capably walks in Liberty DeVitto's colossal footsteps while paying tribute to one of the most iconic, song-centric drummers in pop music.
